it's best you park the car in the main street and take a shorth wark to the beach. (you car could be stolen in the small streets around the beach. It's a very popular beach town, with a variety of peaks all beter at high tide. The east side of the spot is heavily polluted.
Go here to surf when there 's not a lot of people in the water, if crowded, drive along the coast to find some other empty bays, and come back in the night to have a party.
well, what can i say, In summerweekends THIS IS THE PLACE TO BE; lots of party, LOTS of very nice girls.
THe city is very nice; a many narrow streets, lots of bars, Hundreds of people on the streets near the boulevard

Not that good - The chics are nice but you better drive a couple of hours to the west, to Santander area, where there are girls too but better waves. Zarautz gets too crowded and is a bit expensive. Finding parking is sometimes imposible, specially in summer weekends. Waves dont appear much in summer, and in the fall they get bigger, but hard to surf because of the sudden shorebreak and also they are not too long. I prefer the Cantabria area, specially Berria, Langre or Somo. This spots are clean, you can enjoy the wild nature around, usually park right by the beach, and most important, waves are powerfull, clean and long. Anyway, if you prefer sitting by the "malecon" watching girls walk by, you better stay in Zarautz. Good surf
